How to maintain garden tools
A multifunction tool is an oscillating power tool that can perform a wide variety of tasks thanks to interchangeable blades and accessories. It works with a side-to-side movement, rather than a circular motion, which is so fast it feels more like a vibration.
The most common tasks for a multifunction tool are sawing, sanding, grinding and scraping. However, the real advantage of a multifunction tool is that it has almost endless applications, giving you lots of flexibility.
Choose from the range of multifunction blades and accessories depending on what you need to use it for. Select the offset blade to make flush cuts into all sorts of materials. Switch to a sander to smooth out tricky spaces, like window frames. And use a tungsten-tipped blade to remove grout from bathroom tiles without causing any damage.
Here are 10 jobs a multifunction tool can tackle with ease:
With the right accessory, a multifunction tool can do things that other tools can't manage, like plunge cutting timber and plaster – perfect if you need to make a nice neat hole in a wall.
A multifunction tool can go places where most power tools can't, making light work of cutting pipe in awkward corners or removing dry rot in timber in hard to reach places.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
